National Poetry Month - 2010 NAPOWRIMO - April 18 Adorateur


Delicate strokes from her finest fountain pen
spun out the letters in blood red ink
each ornate extender flowing into curlicues and flourishes
reticulated arms thrown wide to the heavens
resting on bowls overflowing with droplets and tears
enclosed with windswept waves of lines
fading off to either side.
She took the mark upon her willingly,
drawing the scarlet of her own blood
in sacrifice, in homage, in the holy pain of worship,
she embraced the fire of his adornment
her secret surrender complete.
